  • “Ken is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the framing industry. His transference of our projections into spreadsheets helped us to see the bigger picture. He gave us recommendations on all facets of our new business, from equipment choices to point of sale and margins. I would highly recommend him whether you are starting a new business or want to improve on your existing business. There is nothing like experience!”

  • “I just started a month ago as a framing consultant/designer at The Studio Shop. We used your manual to help with training which was helpful from time to time, and I can say that I was pretty much fully trained in about 3 weeks. The manual was very helpful, especially when my boss and I came up with our own acronym for the 6 design concepts: SUPERB.”

  • “Ken did exactly what he put in his contract and more. I appreciated the timeliness, compassion to a business owner’s concerns, professionalism, and his honest suggestions. I believe any picture framing business could benefit from the analysis provided by Ken Baur.”

    Cindy Callahan
    PJ’s Frame-Up
  • “I hesitated reaching out to an adviser for some time. I felt I had done all the right things to grow my small retail business already… hiring a consultant might not be the best use of my limited time and resources. It was an outside source that nudged me to give KB Consulting a try- and the positive transformation was beyond what I had expected. In a nutshell- Ken worked ‘with me to define our company culture, further establish our brand, fine tune budgets, and achieve unexpected goals – both for the company and myself personally. Profits increased, morale improved, we cleared some virtual clutter and made room for sustainable growth. Looking back- yes, stepping on to this ride meant I needed to contribute a bit of time, shed some old beliefs, and develop new habits. At times these can be challenging. But Ken helped me stay focused and the results have been worth every penny.”

  • “Ken was outstanding in his approach, suggestions and help…We welcomed the insights of a seasoned framing practitioner as new eyes to help us grow. It is always helpful to have another set of ‘new’ eyes look at your business. We knew that our customer was aging and would require less and less of us but did not know the best way to reach the younger demographic in our area. We believe we now have a good idea how to do that.”

  • “Working with Ken was great. He answered all my questions quickly and knowledgeably. I am looking forward to seeing the profitability of my business increase in the near future. My sales are up 20% this year, but my COGS is actually down YTD. It is all thanks to you talking me into raising my margins!”

    Robin Doherty
    The Frame Shoppe
  • “Ken worked with us to get our pricing structure consistent so that Rockwell’s gross margins are where they need to be. Helping us gain control over such an integral part of the business is no easy task given the numerous variables involved. As we look back, we feel that we now have a much greater sense of control on the front end of our business that was lacking in the past.”

    Steve Desloge

  • “Thank you sincerely for the valuable marketing tool you have provided for us to promote custom framing and to show why small business matters. We have had great positive feedback from clients regarding these newsletters.”

He has a broad scope of expertise in the areas of marketing and website design which proved to be a valuable addition to the services given. Ken’s professionalism and overall knowledge of the framing industry is in my opinion unmatched. I would highly recommend Ken’s services as they have and continue to prove successful.”
